Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz (knee) is finally back in the starting lineup for Week 3, but he might not be a great fantasy option. Wentz is coming back from a major knee surgery to a team with two legitimate receiving options. He was excellent last season, but is due for significant touchdown regression, and his rushing ability is likely at least somewhat compromised due to the ACL tear. Wentz should still end up as a QB1 this season, but his first game back combined with other Eagles injuries has him ranked more as a high-end QB2 this week.

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said quarterback Carson Wentz (knee) will not be limited at all in his season debut in Week 3 against the Colts. "He's going to be prepared mentally, now it's a matter of the physical part taking over," Pederson said. "... In my mind, he's cleared, he's cleared. No need to hold back." It'll be Wentz's first start since tearing his ACL and LCL on Dec. 10 of 2017. It's great news for fantasy owners, but receiver Mike Wallace (leg) will be out and Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) has yet to play this year. That makes Wentz more of a low-end QB1 in his return to action this weekend.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz (knee) has been medically cleared and will start in Week 3 against the Colts, according to head coach Doug Pederson. Backup Nick Foles was much better against Tampa's weak secondary, but the Eagles appear confident that Wentz is as close to 100 percent as he's going to get. Against a beatable Colts defense, Wentz should be back on the radar as a QB1 this weekend.
